The village of Sooke is a few miles west of Victoria, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, and there’s a long sand and gravel bar called Whiffen Spit which forms a protective barrier against the open Pacific ocean storms. It’s also a great place for vast quantities of driftwood. A year or two ago, somebody had assembled this pile of old logs into a makeshift house, complete with a sign “Pirate Island”.
Jann and I spent some time inside it one day and we renamed it Flotsam Manor.
Time goes on, and now we see that Flotsam Manor has fallen on ill times, becoming just Flotsam, with no Manor left.
There may be a pun trying to get out of this somehow, just ignore it.
Oh yes, those are the Olympic Mountains across the Strait of Juan de Fuca in Washington State.
